We have exciting news about James Finley’s retreat at the Mary & Joseph Retreat Center this December. Although the retreat is sold out, we have created an opportunity for additional attendees to be on the grounds of the Retreat Center, as commuters, for the duration of the retreat, and view a live televised version of Dr. Finley’s presentation in our Chapel instead of the main meeting room. 
Those who participate will be considered participants in the retreat, and share all meals with the others attending. All participants will be asked to observe silence during this contemplative retreat, and will be welcome to walk the grounds of the retreat center and enjoy the peacefulness and serenity of the surrounding gardens during breaks in the program. Please note we are limiting this opportunity to 40 attendees. Please reserve a spot as soon as possible, as this opportunity may sell out.
Cost: per person $175 (includes all meals and presentations)
